I am not a gambler. I don’t play Lotto. I have never placed a bet on any sport or any event for that matter. But I won the jackpot! Speaking of which, I don’t know how I have managed to avoid this betting craze that every Tom, Dick and Harry is engaging in. Even Jerry, Kerry and Njeri are into it. Maybe I am just too cautious and afraid of losing hard earned money. I rarely take risks with money no matter how little, but I still won the jackpot!

Do not start frantically searching for my number in your phone-book to congratulate me or to ask for a share of what I won. No, I am not a millionaire yet. I did not win Ksh 13,528,649 or one of those random astronomical figures. I did not win money, I won a woman! I won her heart. This is the woman of my dreams.

She is worth much more than a million dollars. That is not her literal financial worth. Neither is it her valuation. “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is above rubies”, says Proverbs 31:10. I treasure her. She is more precious than the most expensive stones. I can not trade her for anything in the world or anything out of this world. She is from heaven herself so?

A friend told me, “Boss, hapo uliangukia.” Another one said that in ‘her language, it’s called progress.’ Someone else paused, “You are very lucky man! I’m happy for you.” All those and many other comments are gross understatements. No words can adequately describe it. One day you are single, lonely, hopeless and desperate, the next day you have this marvelous, gorgeous, sexy and sweet woman in your arms. Isn’t that equal to winning the lottery?

There is no secret to finding one like her. No formula. There is no place to go looking for them. So when someone asks, and get so many of these, “Where did you find her?” or “How can I find one like her?” or “Si unitaftie mmoja?”, I really don’t know what to tell them. Why don’t you try the internet? Or WestGate Mall? Just Google it! I didn’t go searching so I don’t know where to find one either. God just sent her to me one afternoon. From one of my ribs I guess.

I am thankful to God because all good things come from Him (to those who wait).Who can tell me how to win the Ksh 20 million Sportpesa jackpot? The odds are very long but there are lucky people who win it. The lucky person here is me. If I was a gambler, I would have bet on Belgium to beat Wales in the Euro 2016 quarter finals. I didn’t bet. Wales won. I would have lost money on that. She said to me later, “Belgium lost but you won a Belgian girl!!”
